A mini-quilt I designed as part of the President's Quilt for my local guild 2008. It's only 12" sq.

Claiming my life back

I have been heavy all my life, and I've gained and lost weight many times. Every time I gained back more than what I lost. I gave up until I learned last year that I have diabetes. Now I'm motivated to do it for ME, not to impress someone else like I'd done before.

These past ten months on Sparkpeople have been awesome! The pain in my feet has lessened considerably and I can do just about anything I'd done before as long as I'm not on my feet for too long. Fortunately, I can ...

These past ten months on Sparkpeople have been awesome! The pain in my feet has lessened considerably and I can do just about anything I'd done before as long as I'm not on my feet for too long. Fortunately, I can stay on them longer and longer now!

Your son is getting married - how exciting! Definitely good motivation to get fit for the wedding.

My Etsy shop is Mountain Quiltworks. The address is http://www.etsy.com/shop/Mountainquiltwork
s. I also have a blog at www.mountainquiltworks.blogspot.com. I think I spend too much time on the computer! My hot packs have been selling like hot cakes this month, so my inventory on quilted items is rather low right now. But that's okay. I don't have time for everything.
